Ahoy, unique Airbnb aficionados! We’ve got quite a quirky listing for you: It’s a clothing-optional yacht docked in the desert.

Ok, so here’s the skinny on the listing: This BiG Bend adjacent yacht boasts one bedroom, a kitchen, an upper deck perfect for stargazing, and loads of privacy (thank goodness). There’s a compostable toilet at the campsite and a shower house offering more contemporary commodes nearby.

One happy camper praised the one-of-a-kind accomodations and offered some advice on how to find the remote retreat.

“Ronda’s place is exactly what you would expect when staying on a boat in the middle of the desert,” wrote Alexander, who stayed in December 2019. “It is unique and is a memory you won’t soon forget. The yacht is far enough away from the main area that you truly feel like you’re by yourself. But, it’s also close enough that you’re a short walk or quick drive away from WiFi access or an indoor shower. The property itself is off a dirt road about 15miles off of Terlingua Ranch Road, which is off highway 118. Just bringing this up because this means you’re about 20/30 minutes away from your nearest gas station. I actually enjoyed being away from it all, but just plan accordingly. If you are wanting to visit Big Bend - Rondas place is about 80mins from the park. The drive was quick and very scenic. If you’re looking to just get away from it all or if you’re looking for a good place to lay your head after a day of visiting Big Bend, I highly recommend staying at Rondas place.”

Ronda, the yacht’s host, boasts the title“Superhost,” a designation reserved for Aribnb hosts considered a cut above the rest.
